The interesting thing about the Sicangu Lakota (aka Brule' Lakota) man known commonly as Yellow Breast, is that he is listed in a number of U.S. Government Documents, such as a Treaty signed at Spotted Tail Agency on 23 September 1876, which has him listed under the "Brule Sioux" as "Itecantku-ze, (Yellow Breast,) his X mark, seal." Therefore, if his Lakota name was Itecantku-ze or Ite-cantku-zi, (Ite = face; cantku = breast; zi = yellow), it translates to English as Yellow Breast Face.

Unidentified woman (surely one of the 1877 - 78 photos)
A group of unidentified Pie Ridge Indians photographed at Fort Meade - a later Cross. The date this was give was 1906 - 07. Maybe... You'll note the background is the same as the Hot Springs studio photo posted above.
It seems that Cross was working from Niobrara from 1878 and then from Hot Springs in the late 1880s where he stayed until his death in 1907
